Enjoying Family Timejjj

Dakota and I are really enjoying time off. So far, we have spent a lot of time with my mummsie, my sister Tiffany, and my grandpparents.  We have had a lot of fun at the beach, and spent time cuddling our new nepphews.  Tomorrow we are going to the sand dunes!  I haven't been there since I was a little girl.  We also have to go see my father's side of the family because everyone is actually here in town, and heaven forebid we don't get a picture of everyone together.  my poor sister...she just got out of the hospital on Saturday after having the twin babies, and they are expected to be in the picture.
We switched beds today because we are half-way through the trip.  Now we are staying with my grams and gramps.  We can actually keep Kkaye inside here instead of in the garage.  I feel so much better about that.  She seems much happier already. She even learned a neww trick today. She can give highvfive now!

Do you like cupcakes?

Final Project for my design class this quarter!  Each piece of the tryptic contains 697grid squares.  Each square contains two pieces of cut paper making the "X" shape.  Then I used machine sewing to finish off this "cross-stitch" made from cut paper!  Do you like it? Oh, and each piece is a 14 x 17 inch piece framed in a shadow box.  The professor thinks I need to sell it.  What do you think?  Is it something you might consider buying for the right price or do you know others who could be interested in something like this.  If so, I might put it up on ebay.

Finals Week (and more giveaway clues)

Oh my goodness I have been busy!  The last two weeks have literally been insane!  I've been consumed in final projects.  Normally I am one to go to bed around 11, but these last two weeks bedtime has been closer to 2am if I slept at all.  Tuesday night I pulled my first all-nighter in a very long time.  I woke up Tuesday after only 5 hours of sleep and didn't go to sleep until 530 pm on Wednesday!  Yikes!  The good news is that I got everything done and turned in!  I only have one more presentation on Saturday, and then I will be done until July.  I met my goal of a 4.0 for the quarter!  I am so excited about that! 
As soon as I get out of class on Saturday, we are heading to see my sister.  She's having twins!  It's going to be so much fun being an auntie!  The twins are 7lbs 11 oz, and 8lbs 4oz!  Yeah!  Huge twins.  They are due on July 12 but she is scheduled for a c-section next Wednesday before her belly explodes.  I can't imagine what would happen if she kept them inside until then! 
I wanted to leave you today with another picture clue about the GIVEAWAY!
Do you love Traveling?

Weekend in pictures!!! (lots of pictures)

So the weekend of pictures every hour on the hour, did not happen perfectly.  I couldnt find my watch with the beeper!  But...I did the best that I could.  I forgot some pictures and was a little late on others.  However, we had a super fun weekend.  In consisted of two days of yard-saling, class on saturday, time with the pug, watching starwars, eating yummy food, grocery shopping, working out, and a few other things!  As I was going through the pictures to save and post them, I realized that many of them were similar and some were even boring.  I decided that instead of showing one for each hour, I would only show off the fun ones!  Here is the weekend in pictures!
